Good a Morning, Viet Nam ( excuse auto correct typos– can’t edit easily)

Slept a few hours sat a lovely Seoul airport hotel, Hyatt Incheon. Boarded Korean Air 5 hr flight to Saigon.  Martha slept, I was restless!  We had plenty of room which was. Very nice.  Landed in Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City, and got in a few wrong lines, but eventually made it thru immigration and proceeded to baggage claim. Watched baggage from 4 various gulf hrs unload and get claimed, but nothing for us!  Found our way to lost send found and there were our two bags!


We we were met by Matt, and proceeded to Royal Lotus hotel where we are staying send where this lovely greeting awaited me.


Did if a was liking your of the neighborhood, witnessed the traffic cacophony, and the many, many, many motorcycles!  Will post more pics later. I faded quickly, went to bed by 8 pm local time and slept on and off til morning. image

Its been awhile…

Tomorrow, I leave for a working trip to Southeast Asia,  Vietnam specifically.  I am lucky to be once again travelling with Dr. Martha Tanicala, nursing professor extraordinaire and my BFF.  We travel from Detroit to Seoul, and then on to HCMC (Saigon).  We will be joining others from Global Health Services Network who arrived earlier in Vietnam.  Our task is to determine how GHSN might best help nursing education in Vietnam.  Additionally, we will be giving a workshop to staff and leadership of a maternity hospital about trends in healthcare and nursing education.  stay tuned.  The adventure is about to begin …
